Pours a cloudy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is lemon, wheat, grass, and banana. The taste has most of these elements, especially banana and grassy elements. Aftertaste is the same and is short. Light in body with more of a slick texture. I don’t think this is anything very special.

Pours deep, cloudy yellow-bordering-on-orange with very little head and lacing. Aroma of clove and lemon zest. Lots of lemon in the flavor. Yeast prominent. Also some spice. Easy drinker; tasty and refreshing on this late summer day.

Really lacking in aroma but a really good flavor. Really has a strong flavor of banana. Would drink again.

Notes from the Family Hefe Tasting. Pours like champagne or bubbly cider. No head at all. Aroma has grapes, and bananas & allspice. Taste is a clean grapey banana. 11.2 Finished last in the tasting, although I had it a touch higher than most.

Just found my notes on this. This was received in a trade with my cousin-in-law who lives in the Chicago area.
Obviously, this was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange color with a decent looking one and a half finger-ed white foamy head that once it died, there was barely any lacing.
The smell had some apple/peach/banana-ness that was combined into a yeasty/estery/breadiness. Interesting, but unexpected.
The taste was fairly sweet with the previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a pretty good sessionability running about it. The carbonation is exceptionally smooth and subdued. This is not bad for the style and good for me.
Overall, honestly, its not a bad beer, it just seems a bit different to me and I’m unsure if I’d actually have it again. Maybe if offered, but I probably wouldn’t seek it.

On draft at World if Beer in Tioga. Highly recommended by the waitress. Pours slightly cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head as expected for the style. Aroma is banana, clove, wheat malt, spicy and grassy hop presence. Flavor follows he aroma closely with big banana and clove notes on top of what is a slightly watered down wheat malt base. Could use a bit more flavor punch. Body is light with adequate plus carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel and finish. Overall all the hefe flavors are there but there’s something missing from this that I can’t put my finger on. Nonetheless a solid brew to have on a hot and humid Florida day out on the patio.

Two Brothers Ebels Weiss Beer misses the mark for this style. Lemony fruit aroma rising from a fizzy head and a hazy orange-yellow pour. The head disappears quickly -- disappointing given the hallmark of a Hefeweizen is a thick, fluffy white head. Taste is the expected combination of banana and cloves with some lemony notes. Finish is an uncharacteristic fizziness (much like a soft drink) that just doesn’t fit. Ebel’s Weiss might be different on tap, but it sure didn’t pour well out a bottle. It has potential but needs better execution.
